Description

1. Load Attached save called "Restore Test AFTER".
2. Check Record (R) for Khalid.
3. Notice he is Diseased (From a Greater Ghoul)
4. Make Khalid drink a Elixir of Health from his Quick Item slot [F9].

Observed
Khalid is still Diseased.

Expected
Disease status should be cured.

Notes
Internal report #22768

Observed behavior consistent across EE and original games but does not correspond to the elixir description. #21085 is similar, relating to contagion.
Alternately, elixir description could be amended to the original game description.

Original note:
-I dont know if the potion also dosnt cure other Diseases.
-The potion description clearly states it cures Disease although according to the Wikia description of the item the Elixir of Health didnt use to cure Disease so im guessing this is a EE change?

-Assume this would also effect SoD and BG2:EE but havnt tested.
-Casting Greater Restoration from a scroll or getting a cleric to cast Cure Disease does remove the disease.
-Item code for the potion is 'POTN17'
-May be related to the Bug #22764

Just my thoughts, if the potion can be made to cure Disease like the spells it would actually make the item more useful and would be the only potion that actually can remove Disease which would be awesome. This would also save us from having to rest with every Disease which can be a pain.

It could be balanced to act like the spell Cure Disease however without the added effect of removing Blindness, Deafness and Feeblemind. I think it would be a fantastic addition if that was the intent of the original change. I was very intrigued when I first read it.
